It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject

are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover.

PREFACE. 


In  sending  out  the  &st  portion  of  "The  Church 
Heraldry  of  Norfolk,"  I  feel  that  it  devolves  on  me 
to  preface  the  work  with  some  few  words  of  explanation, 
that  the  Subscribers  may  know  what  they  have  to 
expect,  and  thus  not  be  dissappointed  if  it  fails  to  reach 
the  height  of  their  previous  anticipations.  In  the  circular 
which  was  issued  about  a  year  ago  it  was  stated 
that  the  work  would  contain  a  description  of  all  the 
coats  of  arms  now  to  be  found  in  the  l^orfolk  churches, 
and  I  wish  to  say  further  that  these  descriptions  will 
be  all  given  from  sketehes  which  were  made  by  me  on 
the  spot.  I  am  perfectly  aware  that  it  must  be  a  work 
of  time,  still  I  do  not  despair  of  completing  it. 

Before  now  a  commencement  has  been  made  in 
this  important  addition  to  our  county  histories;  indeed, 
I  must  confess  to  being  much  indebted  to  the 
excellent  papers  •  written  under  the  pseudonym  of 
Pedometer  and  published  in  The  Eastern  Counties^ 
Collectanea  some  years  ago.  Much  the  same  thing 
has  been  done  for  the  county  of  Essex,  and  printed 
in  the  East  Anglian;  and  in  that  valuable  periodical 
are  also  some  scattered  articles  containing  the  heraldry 
and  inscriptions  in  a  few   Norfolk  churches,  but    I    am 

715 


not  aware  that  up  to  the  present  time  any  attempt 
has  been  made  to  put  such  collections  into  the  form 
of  a  book,  properly  arranged  and  indexed.  That  is 
what  I  am  endeavouring  to  do. 

I  am  sure  it  will  be  acknowledged  by  all  there  is  great 
need  that  such  a  work  should  be  no  longer  delayed:  the 
misfortune  is  that  it  was  not  commenced  some  while  ago. 
In  this  age  of  church  restoration  much  heraldry  has  been 
destroyed  which  could  have  been  copied  then:  not  only- 
have  most  of  the  hatchments  been  removed  from  the  walls, 
first  either  into  the  vestry  or  tower,  and  then,  as  I  have 
seen,  to  the  rubbish  heap  outside;  but  in  those  years 
monuments  have  totally  disappeared,  while  numberless 
slabs,  and  some  few  brasses,  have  been  covered  up 
by  the  altar  daiSj  or  the  organ,  or  the  chancel  pews. 
But  few  of  these  memorials  of  the  dead  will  see  the  light 
again,  certainly  not  in  our  day;  of  fewer  still  has  any 
record  been  taken.  Here  and  there  I  have  met  with  an 
isolated  case,  in  the  which  some  interested  person  has 
done  the  good  work,  but  it  is  the  exception,  alas!  not 
the  rule. 

I  can  hardly  dare  to  hope  that  in  the  following  pages 
no  single  shield  in  any  of  the  churches  has  been  left 
undescribed.  I  am  prepared  for  some  few  omissions. 
I  can  only  hope  that  some  bne  may  find  them  out,  that 
I  may  be  enabled  to  insert  the  additions  with  the 
corrections  before  the  book  is  brought  to  its  close. 

I  trust  that  the  arrangement  which  I  have  adopted 
may  be  easily  intelligible  to  those  who  seek  in  these 
pages  for  information.  Each  parish  has  been  taken 
quite  separately ;  by  this  I  mean  that  every  coat  which 
occurs  there  has  been  once   described  in  it,   and  then 


Ill 


afterwards  only  referred  to  by  name.     In  the  description 

of   each  coat   I  have  stated  first  that  which  is  on  the 

monument  or  slab,  and  then,  immediately  following  it, 

with  the  name  in  brackets,  by  reference  to  either  Burke's 

Armory    or    PapwortKa    Ordinary^    I    have     given    the 

tinctures  as  usually  borne  by  the  family  to  whose  memory 

the  monument  was  erected;    then  in  a  separate  paragraph 

I  have  added  whatever  portion  of  the  inscription  I  thought 

worthy  of  record  or  likely  to  be  of  use.     Wherever  a 

copy  of  the  Eoyal  Arms  remains   I   have  given  it.     I 

have  also  been  careful  in  noticing,  as  far  as  possible,  the 

position  in  the  buildings  which  the  memorials  occupy. 

I  take  this  opportunity  of  tendering  my  thanks  to  the 
many  kind  friends  who  have  given  me  help,  more  especially 
to  Mr.  Elvin,  of  Eckling  Grange,  East  Dereham,  who 
has  with  great  care,  and  no  small  amoimt  of  labour, 
revised  my  proofs,  and  endeavoured,  with  his  great 
experience,  to  make  up  for  the  deficiency  in  mine.  To 
Sir  Kenneth  Kemp  my  thanks  are  also  due  for  the 
kindness  which  prompted  him  to  take  upon  himself  the 
cost  of  engraving  the  Gissing  shields.  I  hope  that 
others,  interested  in  like  manner,  may  be  tempted  to  follow 
his  good  example,  and  so  help  to  make  the  work  more 
attractive  to  the  subscribers.

it,  blazons  it  thus,  ''  Barry  of  ten,  gules  and  argent/'  and  fails 
to  give  any  name ;  and  he  assigns  to  Cailly  the  same  coat  as

Through  the  kindness  of  my  friend,  Mr.  Manning,  I  am  able

certificate  of  Sir  Thomas  Knyvett,  published  in  The  Topographer 
and  Genealogist,  vol.  i.  472.  It  is  very  evident  from  its  position 
in  the  shields,  both  here  and  in  New  Buckenham  Church,  that 
it  can  have  been  intended  for  no  other  family.

SHELTON. 

I  should  think,  from  the  appearance  of  the  tombs  in  this 
church,  that  the  shields  thereon  were  repainted  about  fifty  years 
ago,  without  any  regard  to  tinctures.  In  every  case  the  field  of 
the  Shelton  coat  is  "  vert,"  whereas  it  should  be  "  azure."  I  have 
given  them  exactly  as  they  are,  and  where  it  is  evident  what 
they  ought  to  be,  I  have  stated  it.
